A Muslim youth charity has beaten its own record by delivering more than 5,000 meals to homeless people at major cities across the UK and aims to reach the 7,000 mark by New Year’s Day.

Charing Cross, one of Central London’s homeless hotspots was rife with rough sleepers over the weekend where volunteers from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) were busy distributing food and supplies including including water, gloves and winter hats.

Sabah Ahmedi, who at 25 is one of Britain’s youngest Imams, said its principle goals are to follow Islamic teachings by providing help to people who need it and to counter radicalisation amongst youth by engaging them in positive action for social change.
